Lightroom Presets

Monday Preset – My favorite Split Tone

Happy Thanksgiving week to everyone out there. It’s a short one for me so I’m pretty psyched to have some time off. Anyway, today I’m sharing my favorite Split Tone preset. It’s not really colorful like some split tone effects I’ve seen out there. It actually only adds a slight amount of red/orange to the highlights and yellow/orange to the shadows. I think it works great when you’re looking for that subtle classic effect. Also, don’t forget that split toning really works best when you already convert the photo to a black and white. So, I’ve included two presets here. The one with the (BW) at the end of it automatically converts the photo to black and white using the “General – Grayscale” preset that ships with Lightroom. Then I’ve added my split toning effects on top of it. Since Lightroom’s Grayscale preset may not work well on your particular photo, the other one just adds the split tone effect so you’ll have to convert your photo to black and white first. Enjoy ’em!

    Something wen’t terribly wrong. I upgraded to 1.3 and downloaded these presets. Now all my previously edited photographs have a dull orange-ish hue, but only in the develop module. The library still shows the photograph the way I want it to look. Does anyone have any idea what went wrong or have any advice so i can get things back to normal? This only affects the edited photos, the photos that weren’t previously edited in LR are unaffected.
